Vermont's Moose Season Lottery is now open. Apply for a permit today.
Winners of the moose lottery for regular or archery moose and auction winners are not eligible to apply for a moose permit or to participate in the the moose permit auction for 3 years. If you won a permit within the last three years, you are not eligible to apply this year or buy a bonus point. Also, anyone who has held a valid moose permit in any of the previous three years cannot be designated as a subpermittee. Beginning with 2016 permit holders, eligibility increased to 5 years. Rules are subject to change.See chart below for more information:
